I'm having some connection issues with my wireless router and I'm thinking that it could be because of conflicts with other neighbours wireless routers..

So, can anyone please take a look at this scan of the wireless networks in my area and recommend a wireless channel I can switch to becuase I'm a tad confused about which one would be best. Googling suggests 1, 6 or 11 are best because they don't overlap but none of these seem suitable as I (and other seemingly nearby neighbours) are already using channel 1 and the same goes for 6 and 11.. people are already using them..

Here's a screen shot of the scan I did with inSSIDer: http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/900/wirelessnetworks.png

Thanks in advance! :-)

My network is the one at the very top.

Try to keep 1 clear channel in between your network and the others, ie: use channel 3.

3 overlaps with both channels 1 and 6 six though, there's no clear choices though so it's worth a shot.
